Choose Your Hard

Written by on September 20, 2022

Here is a quote I recently read in one of my many social media strings… that still has me thinking about it:

Marriage is hard. 
Divorce is hard.
Choose your hard.

Obesity is hard.
Being fit is hard.
Choose your hard.

Being in debt is hard.
Being financially disciplined is hard.
Choose your hard.

Life will never be easy. It will often be hard. But we can choose our hard. Choose wisely.

I tried to find the author of the quote (but there was no consensus) and found a lot of debate about the actual meaning of the quote instead. Some people were up in arms about how this is about privilege. I can see their point; however, it simply made me think of how much control we really do have over what happens to us. I don’t think I could get out of bed if everything was already decided for me.

What determines my ultimate fate may or may not be out of my control, but I choose not to be a victim. I know for a fact that I make a lot of choices every day that determine my human experience. As I look back, I’ve made some really great choices…and some really bad ones. (insert giant groan here)

So….what are some of the things you are choosing right now ….that you have the chance to make a different choice and get a better outcome?  

In the end, I agree with the last line of the quote:

Life will never be easy. It will often be hard. But we can choose our hard. Choose wisely.
